Need some quick cash? Or do you just have an old smartwatch laying around that you no longer have any need for? Well, whatever your reason is, SmartphonesPLUS is here to help you. In this article, we’ll show you the best way to sell your smartwatch. Not only that, we’ll tell you important things to do before you start the selling process.
First, You’ll Want to Confirm Your Device
The first thing you need to do before the actual selling process begins is confirm which Galaxy or Apple Watch you’re about to sell. Doing this will help both you as the seller, and the buyer of the Apple or Galaxy Watch avoid unnecessary confusion. For this, you don’t just need to know the name of the smartwatch you’re selling; you also need to know the model number. Here’s how to check:
- Samsung Galaxy Watch (Wear OS): Swipe up on the home screen. Go to the Settings menu> Scroll to “About This Watch.” Here, you should see the name and model number of your watch.
- Apple Watch: To locate your Apple Watch’s name and model number, follow this simple guide from Apple. Just click here.
Preparing to Sell Your Smartwatch
Now that you know exactly what smartwatch you have, it’s time to prep your device for sale. You’ll need to…
- Sign out or remove all iCloud, Samsung, and Google accounts. Follow this guide on signing out of your cloud accounts.
- If you have an Apple or Samsung smartwatch that uses cellular data, deactivate carrier service and pay off any remaining balance on your account.
- Back up any necessary files externally, then factory reset your device.
- Remember to remove any SD or SIM cards from your device.
- Clean your device and make it look as good as possible. The better your device looks, the more you can sell it for.
The Selling Process
Now that you’ve reset your Apple or Samsung Galaxy smartwatch and have gotten it looking it’s best, it’s ready to be sold. There are two easy ways you can sell your Apple or Samsung smartwatch: Find an online store that buys them for refurbishing and resale, or sell on an online marketplace.
Finding an online store that buys
This is the easiest and fastest way to sell your used smartwatch. Search for a store that’ll give you the best price for your device, pay fast, and make the whole process as smooth and easy as possible for you. You can learn more about SmartphonesPLUS’ buying process in the link attached.
If you live in the United States, the best place to sell your Samsung Galaxy or Apple Watch is SmartphonesPLUS. We also recommend UpTrade as a legitimate source for selling your gently used device online. These stores put the customer first, so you can be sure of a good sales experience.
Once you find a store that seems promising, your next move is to check its credibility and trustworthiness. You can do this by taking a look at their reviews online. If after reading the store review you find nothing alarming, then go ahead and make contact. If you do find some red flags and an overwhelming number of bad reviews, it’s best to just move on.
Request a Quote
A quote is simply a price tag for your device. That is how much the store is willing to pay to take your device off your hands. To do this, head over to their website and navigate your way to where you’ll be asked for your smartwatch details (like name, model, condition, etc.). Make sure you fill in the details of your device truthfully, so you won’t have issues with the store later on. Next, you should receive a quote (some online stores only give a price range).
If you’re okay with the store’s quote, click on “Sell” or whatever prompt to proceed comes up. Then follow the steps given to you by the store to get your device shipped to them for physical inspection.
Finding an Online Marketplace
Doing this shouldn’t be all that difficult, as you probably already know some online marketplaces for your Apple or Samsung Galaxy smartwatch, such as Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist or eBay.
Search Google (or whatever search engine you use) for “online marketplace near me.” Once you find a few places you’re interested in, do some research about their selling process and take the necessary steps to create your sellers account and post your listing. Be weary of scammers, and do your research on what to look for to ensure your buyer is legitimate and the sale is safe. This method is usually slower than selling your device to a store, and you’ll have to do your due diligence to watch for scammers, but you do have the potential to get more money for your device using this method.
